  • In every science there are two factors facts and ideas or, facts and the mind Science is than knowledge Knowledge is the persuasion of what is true on adequate evidence But the facts of astronomy, chemistry, or history do not constitute the science of those departments of knowledge Nor does the mere orderly arrangement of facts amount to science Historical factIn every science there are two factors facts and ideas or, facts and the mind Science is than knowledge Knowledge is the persuasion of what is true on adequate evidence But the facts of astronomy, chemistry, or history do not constitute the science of those departments of knowledge Nor does the mere orderly arrangement of facts amount to science Historical facts arranged in chronological order, are mere annals The philosophy of history supposes those facts to be understood in their causal relations In every department the man of science is assumed to understand the laws by which the facts of experience are determined so that he not only knows the past, but can predict the future The astronomer can foretell the relative position of the heavenly bodies for centuries to come The chemist can tell with certainty what will be the effect of certain chemical combinations If, therefore, theology be a science, it must include something than a mere knowledge of facts It must embrace an exhibition of the internal relation of those facts, one to another, and each to all It must be able to show that if one be admitted, others cannot be denied.

    One thought on “Systematic Theology - Volume I”

    1. I didn't know the latin, greek, hebrew, french, or german directly quoted in the text. I especially enjoyed the biblical survey on the doctrine of Christ. Didn't particularly benefit from the philosophical discussions of the day. I read this in hardback, not nook.

    2. A very good systematic theology! 1st volume out of 3. Helpful to know Latin, German, Greek, Hebrew, and French, especially Latin. Personally I only have learned French and am learning Greek and Hebrew, so the Latin and German I didn't understand too well (maybe got bits); all these languages are just for quotes (though they are a decent amount of them). You'd get a good solid theological education from this with just English though.

    3. Worth the time!would have given the book 5 stars, but some of the content is dated. certain parts of the book, I had to persevere through, to get to the good stuff, but it was well worth it! books like this should be read more in our times.
